Right after getting lip injections, it can feel really weird. Your lips will be super bloated and feel very solid. You may be instructed to massage any lump between your thumb and forefinger, which won't hurt due to the numbing cream. However, once the cream wears off, your lips will likely hurt for 12 hours.
In general, when done correctly, you shouldn't feel anything but softer and more supple lips. Initially, this period of swelling (which started about an hour after the injection and lasted the rest of the day) can make your lips look quite alarming. But don't worry, the swelling will decrease within a few days. After two days, the bloated feeling should have completely subsided.
You may still feel like there is something in your lips, but massaging any uneven texture should help the filler melt into your lips after a while. After three weeks, the swelling and feeling of uneven texture should have completely gone away and your lips should look natural with a little extra volume. We asked board-certified dermatologists Michael Lin, MD, and Nina Naidu, MD, as well as nurse practitioner Breana Wheeler (who performed my injections) to give us information on everything related to lip injections. Dr.
Minocha mentioned that he would use Emervel lips for the augmentation procedure as it has the right viscosity for the lips and its super soft formula should give a nice and smooth finish. Beck received her lip injections from a doctor in New York City whom her roommate had previously visited and recommended. The doctor punctured a thin needle under the very superficial upper layer of the skin of the lip and then dipped the syringe while simultaneously pulling out the needle to disperse the filler in that trace. He explained that it really wouldn't do much to her lips as they were already okay but agreed that her upper lip could benefit from a little filler.
He used around 1 ml syringe of Juvéderm which is equivalent to 8-10 single injections. Getting lip fillers can be a great way to enhance your appearance without drastically changing your face. It can make any lip color look great and also look good when worn alone. However, it is important to remember that everyone's experience with lip fillers is different and it is important to consult with a professional before getting any kind of augmentation procedure done.
